Yeah, sorry. I see now that your first message in this thread said:

but not again till now, so it had slipped my mind (easily done :)
I've since checked that 11.1 won't help you in this respect either.
Are you sure there's no way to use sc(4) with X on 10.3? We saw lots
about getting proper console switching going (again) using vt and X on
the stable@ list on earlier 10.x, but I can't recall any details, since
sc still works fine on my 9.3 (amd64) system, where vt(4) first became
available, including proper suspend/resume support from ttyvN or from X.
But that's using a much older X (and everything else), so I wouldn't
want to lend you any false hope at this stage ..
